Most billionaires never graduated college. Bill Gates, Zuckerberg, Peter Branson.  Just sayin'. Be an entrepreneur.  You should immigrate to America and you'll get to earn much more and keep more. Europe is a socialist sh*thole.

 

Also I'm quite happy here thanks. Every Englishman should be proud that we as a country don't leave behind those who need help.

Honestly guys these luxury apartments will be much more beneficial to London's economy than a sports stadium. It's been debunked that sport stadiums bring any kind of economic growth to an area. They don't. Stadiums sit idle for most of the year, but don't get me wrong Battersea would have been amazing.

I'm not sure if your post is serious or not so no offence intended, but if you believe this you are sadly mistaken.

 

The iconic Battersea site has been bought by Far Eastern speculators and developers with the sole aim of selling luxury apartments to other Far Eastern developers and speculators for investment purposes. If and when these apartments are ever built the general concensus is the majority will remain empty while their owners reap the 'rewards' of the property price boom.

 

There is little, if any benefit to local residents and businesses, in fact the opposite is true. What heart was left in this once thriving area will be ripped out for once and all. Boris has been tarting/touting this development all over China in recent months. In the meantime ordinary Londoners are undergoing enforced 'social cleansing' as they are swept out in favour of new money.

 

To the best of my knowledge Chelsea's plans for the site included developments that would benefit local residents and businesses, we just weren't prepared to pay over the odds. Fair play t the club for that.

Don't know if anybody saw a documentary called the "secret history of our streets" that was on BBC 2 a couple of years ago? They did an episode on Portland road in Notting Hill which really made you think. Basically showed the way in which it has been transformed from a vibrant multicultural community in the 1950's and 60's, to a row of Oligarch money holdings. Did a few interviews with the two remaining original residents who say that systematically all their neighbors left, as the money on offer became too high to turn down.

 

I made this point earlier, but if any of you have spent any time in Paris you'll see what we as a city are crashing towards. An inner city , devoid of true local residents, pretty to look at but ultimately soulless. People on lower income will be driven further into the suburbs creating a ring of poor, high crime areas around the city. But as long as it is out of sight , who cares eh?

Could not have said this better myself. I am saddened at how this country is gradually being sold off to the highest bidder and as I said, such developments would be empty most of the year as its occupants would be living in Asian countries. We are in a dangerous state where the common man can barely afford the prices charged by these developers as council properties are gradually being bought off. London is already becoming soulless and the areas where the true crime is more and more evident are just being left behind.

I would absolutely love it if a new council takes the helm and lists the power station as a heritage site. That would be justice. Though, sadly it wouldn't help Chelsea either.

To get back on point, anybody heard anything else about any other possible locations?

Ah, I hadn't read Ramigoals recent posts before my recent post above but I see now he/she is clearly a wum/troll. How is the gentrification of Detroit panning out Rami ?

 

What gentrification of Detroit? Detroit is exactly what happens when rich people vacate a city.

Yes I've traveled all over Europe. People have much less money there than in the USA.

Gentrification in Europe is not the same as in the U.S.  Europe has a sh*tty economy and high taxes.  U.S. cities like Manhattan, San Francisco, and Washington D.C.  are awesome places to live. Not soulless at all. New York New York is the most expensive place to live with the highest concentration of billionaires yet it's the coolest city in the world with plenty of culture.  I guess the only way to get rich in Europe is to have old money or get government contracts.  Everything anyone cares about is developed in the U.S. Full stop.

Rah, what an incredibly ignorant remark. I am working class and have a one hundred percent clean record. To get a job like that requires diplomas and believe it or not, many like myself come from families who couldn't afford university fees.

Oh dear.....  Whoosh !

The irony of an American saying that on a forum for a London football team playing in a English league and in a European Cup competition. Seems you care enough about it to be posting on here.

Americans just don't get irony do they ? My comment was exactly that.......irony.

 

Detroit is exactly what happens when the wealthy job creating multi-national companies decide they can mass produce stuff for a few dollars less in a far away land, more often than not by exploiting cheap labour, and to hell with the folks who helped them create that wealth in the first place.

 

I digress, so getting back on topic Chelsea FC presented plans that would have rejuvinated an area of London that much of it's support is drawn from, to the benefit of many, not just a priveleged few overseas asset strippers.

 

Maybe this is a discussion for a seperate topic, or maybe we can allow Ramigoals to just continue spouting his ignorance to a wider audience  ?   I will leave that decision to the Moderators.

FFS stop embarrassing yourself and your fellow countrymen.  Are you really just another delusional American? This 'patriotism' thing has gone too far now you are being brainwashed in College.  You wonder why your country just can't get on with anyone in this world with comments such as those you made, its just amazing how you continually poke your nose into everyones business around the world and f**k everything up.  Who developed the latest world economic crisis….oh yes the Americans, who developed lies to go into Iraq, oh yes the Americans, yes you certainly have a knack of developing things... :face_palm:

As a libertarian I completely agree that militarism is a bad thing. However, you are communicating on the internet, using wifi, mac/windows, on a site that uses php and javascript, and you probably have a smartphone and watch American shows and movies. Probably using air conditioning too, since summer is almost here.  I'm just sayin.

You mean the internet that's invented by a Brit that travels through communication cables built by British Telecom or Virgin Media? In this country at least. The claim that the World Wide Web is an American system is, quite frankly, embarrassing.

I can give the US a lot of credit for a lot of things. I buy a lot of Apple products, an American company, but the chief of design there was from Essex and they're all built in China. I also have a lot of respect for Bill Gates, who has the intelligence to be a lot more modest and genuinely endeavours to help the world, especially Africa.

By the way, I care about cars. The ones the US make are bloody appalling.

I'm guessing you're from the South?

Haha, this has to be a parody.

First phone - a Scotsman

First computer - an Englishman

Internet - an Englishman

WiFi - many people, but a Dutchman supposedly is called the father of WiFi.

Air con - ancient Egyptians.

But other than that a very informative post.
